    I have a problem, I recently made a movie in flash and tried to send it to a friend. When she downloaded it to here desktop, and double clicked on it, she was informed that windows didn't recognise the file and was prompted to search online to find what sort of file it was. It is a SWF file (we knew this already) what is all this about searching for file types and what does a person do when they find out what file extension it is? Can anyone tell us what to do next?
